Rockefeller Center Holiday Window Display

In late 2017, an opportunity presented itself to light a window display in Rockefeller Center in New York City, right around the corner from the annual holiday tree and ice skating rink.

The display, made entirely of chocolate, is a scale replica of Rockefeller Center: the tree in front of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, an ice skater, the Prometheus statue, and numerous international flags. Two experts in the world of chocolate worked together to build the base display.

I worked for the Experience Design Studio to design and implement the lighting experience. The lights, which were animated with a constant snowfall effect, could be controlled by Twitter. Remote users viewing a livestream could change the tree to 9 different colors.

Find out more about the project. Take a look at the photo and video album.
